5:20pmPST Update!: Tickets are on sale now!!!!!
Just yesterday Star Wars released the official poster for Episode VII: The Force Awakens. And everyone is talking about it. As many like myself are pointing out a big character is missing from this new poster leading to much speculation as to Luke Skywalkers role in the upcoming installment. The unveiling of this new image also came with news of an exclusive look at the film would premiere today!
Tonight during ESPN’s Monday Night Football program the newest trailer will air during halftime. This is a can’t miss event for any Star Wars fan. Disney and Star Wars Instagram accounts have both teased parts of this new trailer.
But that’s not the only excited news that came along, tickets for the movie are also going on sale today too! With only 2 months left until the theatrical release fans will be able to be ahead of the line with this earlier ticket sale. Tickets will go immediately on sale following tonight’s special trailer release.
